Planet Earth Rock and Roll Orchestra

A loose conglomeration of musicians from various groups (CSN, Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, Dave Freiberg and others at various times) who collaborated on several albums durimg the 1970's. Most noteably Blows Against the Empire and If I could Only Remember My Name. A significant amount of rehersal material circulates, and a PERRO album as well. I have some of this and I can send it to you if you are genuinely interested in hearing it. I have not spent much time with it myself though, and I'm sure Thomas and some other folks here are more familiar with this music and can elaborate further...

Thanks very much Cliff. I am so overwhelmed at the moment it would probably just fry my brain circuits, but maybe some time later.

Prejudicial opinion alert: If you have the time, listen to If I Could Only Remember My Name. Then you'll know what they were. Even though David Crosby's name is on the cover, it's really the PERRO group. One of the best and most underrated records of that time. I still listen to it constantly.

The Loser we have is a rehearsal from January '71, mostly just Garcia, bass, and fiddle I think. Much more intimate & plaintive than the Dead's version (I like "last fair deal" more here), and the fiddle is great in the song.
